    Hi Kari,
    Great tutorial but i had a few questions before i dive into this.
    I'm building a totally new Computer but want to keep my software as is by moving my HDD with windows onto my new system.
    First, will this work for a totally new build and more importantly will my software (installed games) continue to function fully?
    I really do not want to do a clean install of windows since getting my software back up to date especially games will take days.

    my first time ever posting so i hope i got it right

    Method 2 has the steps to restore the image file.
    So it's hard to understand where you're at in the process.

    Provide more info.
    Does Windows 7 still work on the computer?
    What was the fatal error?
    I probably can't help much here. Just don't have the time now.
    But there are experts here who will, if you provide the info.

    Hello Everybody & in particular Kari for such an outstanding tutorial, I am busy replacing my Motherboard and I have decided to try the Sysprep method, unfortunately I am encountering a 'fatal error' when running Sysprep - not the WMPNetworkSvc error, although it may be related? The error that I am getting is:

    Code:
    2012-05-19 16:07:19, Error      [0x0f0082] SYSPRP LaunchDll:Failure occurred while executing 'C:\Windows\System32\wevtapi.dll,EvtIntSysprepCleanup', returned error code 1717[gle=0x000006b5]
    2012-05-19 16:07:19, Error      [0x0f0070] SYSPRP RunExternalDlls:An error occurred while running registry sysprep DLLs, halting sysprep execution. dwRet = 1717[gle=0x000006b5]
    2012-05-19 16:07:19, Error      [0x0f00a8] SYSPRP WinMain:Hit failure while processing sysprep cleanup providers; hr = 0x800706b5[gle=0x000006b5]
    I'm assuming that wevtapi.dll is the guilty party in this case? I'm unsure as to what process/service to stop to allow Sysprep to run successfully, any advice will be appreciated
    Cheers

    Tough one Paul. I looked around, as you probably did, found the same problem, but no real answer.
    The only solution I saw was a reinstall, entirely against your purpose.
    I can only guess virus. Hate saying that, but it has to be at least considered.
    So you might look into that.
    Could be permissions, of which I know little. I just use admin for everything I do.
    As far as stopping services, that DLL is used by a number of them, some which will stop your machine if you stop them.
    Good luck. Solving this will make you a hero.

    Hello Victor S, thanks for your time & effort on my behalf, I'm fairly certain - or as certain as one can be :) - that it's not a virus, but you never know, I will re-scan with various tools to at least nullify that theory.
    Failing that, I may have to try the manual method as proposed by Kaktussoft - who I know is out of favour at the moment - by removing all current MB drivers including discrete graphics drivers/software, deactivating certain software like Adobe Acrobat, MS Office etc., replacing the new MB, rebooting and let Win 7 do its thing, then installing all the new drivers for the new MB from the CD, I'm not overly confident with this method, particularly as we are talking about different chipsets - H55 replacing P55 - but there does seem to be enough anecdotal evidence that this method works OK.
    Cheers

    Sysprep is meant to be used in a running computer from a running system, so it's too late for that.
    I don't know of a way of making the Win 7 on your SSD work in a new computer.
    And I doubt anybody else does. Wish it wasn't like that, but it is.
    If somebody does have a method, they'll pitch in with it, and you can decide if you want to try it.
    IMO, your best bet is to reinstall Windows on your new computer.
    If you have something important on your SSD, make sure you don't lose it by reinstalling Windows there before you get that data off the SSD.
